The Daniel Morton and Laura Dill Morton Scholarship was established in 2016 to provide an award annually to an outstanding student/trainee with an interest in toxicologic pathology. Students with a DVM or equivalent degree enrolled in a full-time graduate or residency program who demonstrate commitment to toxicologic pathology and high potential for a successful career in this field are encouraged to apply. Applicants must submit a personal statement describing current research activities, interests and activities related to toxicologic pathology, and professional goals, two professional letters of recommendation with one letter from their academic advisor, and Curriculum Vitae.
Applicants will be judged based on level of demonstrated interest in the field of toxicologic pathology, letters of recommendation and CV. A $5,000 monetary award and engraved plaque will be presented at the Award & Recognition Ceremony during the STP Annual Symposium. Award acknowledgement will be included on the STP website and in the annual symposium issue of Toxicologic Pathology.
Student Travel Grant are available to Graduate Students for participation in the STP Annual Symposium. Each of the students who are chosen will receive a stipend (approximately $1,000—varies yearly) to defray travel and lodging costs associated with attending the convention, complimentary meeting registration, and complimentary STP student membership for the following year. Recipients will be recognized at the Award and Recognition Ceremony at the Annual Symposium.
Young Investigator Awards (1st, $750; 2nd $500; 3rd, $250) will also be presented at the STP Annual Symposium for the top three student poster abstracts. When you submit an abstract online, please check the appropriate box to indicate your interest in applying for the Young Investigator Award.

The Charles Capen Trainee Award given by the International Academy of Toxicologic Pathology (IATP) and the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) recognizes Dr. Charles Capen and his legacy as a researcher, teacher, and mentor to the pathology and toxicology communities spanning more than four decades. Dr. Capen was recognized worldwide as an exceptional leader in veterinary and biomedical research. He was a highly regarded mentor to numerous graduate students and postdoctoral scientists. His students and trainees are now leaders throughout academia, government and industry.
The awardee will receive a cash award in the amount of $2000.00 to further their training and education in the field of toxicologic pathology, plus complimentary STP annual meeting registration and complimentary STP student membership for the following year. They will be recognized during the Award & Recognition Ceremony at the STP Annual Symposium. Applicants are required to submit a published (or accepted for publication) manuscript from a peer-reviewed journal consisting of original work involving clinical or experimental research that relates to toxicologic pathology.
Eligible trainees are individuals working on an academic degree, or in a training or residency program, in the field of experimental or toxicologic pathology or a related discipline (to include, but not limited to, veterinary students, pathology residents [veterinary or medical] and/or MS or PhD students). Candidates who have recently completed (within 12 months of the application deadline) their graduate studies are also eligible, but must have been enrolled in a program at the time the data were collected. Attendance at the STP Annual Symposium in the year the award is presented is required.
